Steve Flink: Rafa Greatest Ever on Clay

6/5/2011

by Steve Flink

PARIS—The way I see it, the debate is now over: Rafael Nadal is indisputably the greatest men’s player ever on clay. I have immense respect for Bjorn Borg, and saw him capture his six French Open crowns with style, grace, and an unshakable demeanor that set him apart from all of his rivals. Borg was magnificent on the dirt, imperturbable to his core, machinelike with his groundstroke accuracy, and an astonishing athlete and sportsman who could beat his rivals to a pulp with his uncanny consistency and ball control that seemed at times to be out of this world.

But Rafael Nadal has taken the clay court game to another level, and I believe simply by tying Borg here at Roland Garros with six championships he deserves the honor of being considered the best player ever on his favorite surface. Nadal has lost only one match in seven years on the red clay of Roland Garros, and it is hard to imagine that he won’t win this tournament at least two more times. It is the place he most loves to do his work, the tournament that seems to inspire him the most, the setting he prefers beyond all others. He is a champion through and through and a man of immense character, which he demonstrated again today with a hard fought 7-5, 7-6, 5-7, 6-1 triumph over Roger Federer in a contest that lasted three hours and 39 minutes, on a day when the Spaniard was not at the top of his game.
